Wharton Magazine: “Why so successful?”
Joyce Meng: “Hard work with purpose, not giving up and not compromising the original vision for what is ‘comfortable’ or ‘easily reachable.’ Even if you don’t know something today, you can learn it. So many studies have empirically shown that self discipline trumps intelligence, IQ and talent in predicting success.”
